The author does not approach counselling from any particular approach but instead looks at how people think, feel and act during the counselling process. It looks at what counsellors can learn from contemporary psychology and helps address many questions such as the effect of counsellors/ clients memory in conducting effective sessions. Written in a refreshing style each of the chapters begin with a case study reflecting the ideas of the chapter and providing concrete illustrations of abstract ideas.
